C compilers

Hey! Is there any c compiler program that supports windows 8? I need it for my college course and ever since upgrading to windows 8, I can't use my old dev c++ compiler, its keeps crashing. I don't want to use the Microsoft visual ones because my uni uses Linux which apparently I think it won't be compatible with the gcc compile in the Linux environment.

    If you're compiling for POSIX environments you should use a POSIX environment to do your work. Get a copy of Virtualbox or VMWare Player and spin up a Linux environment to do your work in.

    Alteratively, use Cygwin or bite the bullet and use Visual Studio
  2. When I took a C course, my class was told to use CodeBlocks or JGrasp. I used Visual Studio. See if your college has access to Mircosoft DreamSpark, you can download Visual Studio for free.
